A true show-stopper from the 1974-1977 era.

Seriously, though, I love the Olivia Newton-John songs. Elvis is clearly having fun with them. Neither serves as the best cut from the LP, though. That honor should go to the title track, "He’ll Have to Go", "Way Down", "She Thinks I Still Care", or possibly "Unchained Melody". Anyway, we’ll have to see what we see when this poll comes along.

I voted for Hurt. I've never liked For The Heart or his version of Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain.

And "Danny Boy" is the winner, not so surprisingly. But I´m shocked that "Never again" got a vote :shock:

Anyway! Thanks for voting!

Kind regards

I love For the Heart but voted for Danny Boy. Hurt, Blue Eyes Crying, Bitter they Are and Love Coming Down are also good

Poorly recorded, drowned by the overdubbed backing, not really suitable material for Elvis, and a bland performance from him.

Otherwise, it was great.
